"Hip Hop & Hymns touched, entertained and educated me."
"A new voice that is uninhibited, distinctive and gripping - Mawunyo's memoir is full of love, joy, defiance and humour."
"A global read by a fantastic author in the land down under."
"I have greatly enjoyed Hip Hop & Hymns. In addition to being easy to read, it is vivid, raw and honest and I'm fascinated by the role music has played in our respective writing journeys."
"This memoir by Mawunyo Gbogbo is really terrific - authentic, compelling, beautifully written. The voice is so fresh and clear and no BS! Found it hard to put down."
"There’s so much in Hip Hop & Hymns that I can personally relate to, from Mawunyo’s upbringing to her faith, to her career choice/journey. She literally brought the two worlds of Hip Hop and Hymns together, something I haven’t seen being done before. The cherry on top was the African-Australian perspective. I absolutely love it!"
Mawunyo would like to acknowledge Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples as the First Australians and Traditional Custodians of the lands where she lives, learns and writes.
